    Sunday afternoon kick off for Moyes' first game as West Ham boss. As usual, we seem to play a team just when they get a new manager in (although I'm sure a lot of other team's supporters feel the same way).

    Anyway, I am not really sure what our injury issues are at the moment so this is a bit of a guess based on what we were told a couple of weeks ago, but I really hope Hughes starts after being so impressive against Everton and hopefully Pereyra is fit again (not holding my breath):

    Gomes

    Femenia
    Mariappa
    Kabasele
    Holebas

    Doucoure
    Cleverley

    Pereyra
    Hughes
    Richarlison

    Gray

    Think this will be tough. West Ham will probably sit deep and try to catch us on the break. We're not great at breaking teams down who do that. First team to score will win this in my opinion.

    Optimistically predicting 2-0. But would not be surprised if we lost 1-0!

    Just heard that Prodl and Pereyra are both in full training so should both be on the bench at least.

    Hallelujah!

    I'd be confidence if this wasn't on Sky and they had a new manager.

    Plus we are the only Premier league game on so the attention will be even greater!

    We have lost 3 in a row ourselves though due to various reasons so a positive win would be nice with Man U and Spurs coming up!

    Difficult to predict. If it was at West Ham (even in their new stadium) I would go for a Watford win. Watford at home have difficulty winning. I suppose a 1-1 draw would leave everybody disatisfied and slightly deflated.

    I'll be amazed if West Ham end this game with 11 men.

    We are very good on the ball and look quite dangerous going forward but defensively we are shocking. Britos has been awful today and has nearly cost us a goal on 2 occasions.

    We need a second!

    Watford a really enjoyable watch this season to be fair. You can see defensively how they've tossed away the games to Everton and Chelsea they should have won though it's entertaining to watch them.

    What a carthorse Carroll has turned into. A real wasted talent.

    Moyes will get West Ham relegated.

    Richarlison is way too good for Watford.

    Lovely result. Nothing against the Hammers but i don't want the bottom 3 clubs to pick up many points.

    Watford play without a back to the wall target man striker. They have a mobile main striker in Andre Gray.

    It will work against a team that doesn't play deep. West Ham turning in every team's favourite opponents.

    Very good performance generally.

    True Gomes had to pull off 2 great saves before half time.

    We exploited West Ham's lack of pace and really dominated the midfield with Hughes and Doucoure excelling.

    Yep, he’s our Coutinho... way too small of a club to fulfill his potential.
